This Hostel is located right at the hop of the hill of Positano. There are a LOT of stairs to the beach but on the way up there is a bus that takes you to a stop less than 100m from the hostel. I stayed in an 8 bed dorm room upstairs from the reception and it was great. I... More

My absolute only complaint is that the wifi only works down by the lobby and not in the rooms. Otherwise this place was amazing!! Favorite hostel yet! Real cool people staying in all the rooms. Breathtaking views from the hostel. Cheap drinks before going out. On weekends they see who wants to go to the clubs and will make large... More

I had an enjoyable stay at Hostel Brikette. Peter, the owner and his staff were so accommodating and was willing to provide any suggestions. It was an easy walk from the bus stop and I arrived early in morning so I was able to stow my luggage hassle free. Some day when I return to Positano I will come back... More

I met a lot of super cool people while I was here. We were able to hang out during the day. It's a great place to meet other backpackers. However, it got rather cold at night, and for some reason my bed was really damp. I was pretty much freezing. Therefore, on the second night, I asked for some extra... More

Good location for the price you pay. Beautiful view from the terrace. Be prepared to walk about 750 stairs each way to the main beach and back. I feel like you have to be physically in shape to stay here, or have a car/scooter. Stayed here while backpacking through Europe with a friend so obviously we were walking everywhere. I... More

Great spot for backpackers - its definitely not luxurious, but Positano is expensive and it is one of the cheaper ways to get to stay in such a beautiful place. It was cozy and the people were friendly. Nice patio with a great view of the ocean, welcoming and inclusive and they do a good job of having a good... More

This hostel is great, I definitely enjoyed my 3-night stay. Staff organize nights out to a club in a cave, they offer homemade food that the owner cooks (cannelloni, penne with homemade sauce, etc..) and it's all amazing. Lots of Lemoncello is consumed at the bar during the evening (they've got great happy hour deals on alcohol), music plays, laughs... More

It's by no means luxury, but this little hostel was lovely. Bathrooms were reasonably clean, with hot showers available between certain hours (this was not a problem). There is a kitchen in the hostel that offers breakfast and dinner for a good price. For breakfast there is a range of options that you should definitely try out, and for dinner... More

Best hostel we stayed at in Italy!! Amazing view, friendly guys who worked there and the most communal, social place we stayed at. Wifi, cheap bar and best shower facilities we've used (definitely have had some shockers). Definitely choose the 10 mixed dorm over the female only, really spacious and clean. Breakfast offered and accomodation the cheapest you'll find in... More

My two friends and I stayed in a private room which overlooked the water while we were in Positano. This hostel is in a great location and is very affordable. We met lots of cool people and thoroughly enjoyed our stay! I would definitely recommend it!
